An impressive lineup of music stars will gather at Atlanta's Fox Theatre on November 12 to take part in a concert paying tribute to arguably the most influential and famous Southern rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd .  The event, dubbed One More for the Fans! -- Celebrating the Songs & Music of Lynyrd Skynyrd, will feature performances by Skynyrd themselves, Gregg Allman , Cheap Trick , Peter Frampton , Charlie Daniels , Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes and his side group Gov't Mule , Staind 's Aaron Lewis , John Hiatt , Robert Randolph and country stars Alabama , Trace Adkins and Jamey Johnson .

Also on the bill is 38 Special 's Donnie Van Zant , the brother of late Lynyrd Skynyrd frontman Ronnie Van Zant and the group's current singer, Johnny Van Zant .  Additional special guests will be announced soon.  The concert will be recorded for future release on a variety of platforms.

Acclaimed producer Don Was will serve as music director for the show, and will lead an all-star house band at the event.

"Lynyrd Skynyrd's music has had a profound and unmistakable influence on artists and fans all over the world," Was says in a statement.  Keith Wortman , the creator and executive producer of the concert, adds, "This incredible initial lineup of artists coming together to celebrate this band and their music is a genuine reflection of that."

Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Fox Theatre share a historic connection.  The band recorded its classic 1976 live album One More from the Road at the venue as part of an initiative to save the theater from being demolished.

Tickets for the One More for the Fans! tribute concert go on sale to the general public starting on August 18 at 10 a.m. local time at the Fox Theatre box office, FoxTheatre.org or by calling 855-285-8499.  For more information about the event, visit CelebrateSkynyrd.com .
